Well, If Obama Donated to Senior Fund…

Written by

The War on Fun is bringin’ you down. You have two options: drink 40’s somewhere else, or promise yourself that, without a doubt, you will never give a penny to this god awful place as long as you live. Senior Fund and its awkward propaganda be damned!

Well, unless you’re too cool for mimicking Obama’s every move, you might want to reconsider that plan. It turns out that despite a few attempts to distance himself from Columbia during the campaign, the President donated $1,000 to the university this year.

If you are an Obama follower to the core and can’t see yourself scraping up $1,000 a year to give to PrezBo, never fear. When you compare the $1,000 donation to some of the other numbers in the Obamas’ tax returns, like their $2.66 million dollars in adjusted gross income, you realize Obama only donated about $40 dollars in real people money. In fact, Bwog’s special Lingering Resentment Calculator tells us that if Obama were making $100,000, by proportion his donation would have been $37.59. Ok, maybe that’s still a little more than Bwog has budgeted for PrezBo too.

  1. hey Bwog  

    if you actually look at his tax return -- he gave $1000, not $5000

  2. so mad that  

    i only voted for him because he was an alum. :/

  3. don't worry

    i'm pretty sure he's going to send us some of that bailout and stimulus money

  4. ...  

    WHEN I AM RICH (WHICH I DESERVE TO BE, NO THANKS TO THIS SHITHOLE), I WILL NOT DONATE A DAMN PENNY TO THIS SCHOOL.

    MAYBE I WILL CONSIDER IT IF THEY GET THEIR DAMN PRIORITIES STRAIGHT AND HAVE TOPLESS WOMEN DELIVER FREE BEER TO MY DOOR EVERY DAY ALONG WITH MY MORNING PAPER. OTHERWISE LEELO CAN SUCK IT.

  5. aha

    So how many Columbia undergrads are making $100,000? Perhaps when I make my first million, or second $100,000, I will donate something. Give me a call then.

    • Do the math

      Well, if Obama's generosity is like $40 from someone making $100k, a $1 minimum to senior fund implies you should be making at least $2500 per year, which you definitely do if you're working through school, and if you're not then you can afford it anyway.

  6. Yessss  

    He donated to Columbia and not Harvard.

    That's worth repeating.

  7. '10  

    obama donations or not, columbia ain't getting a penny from me. ever.

    • 2010 too  

      if you're so bitter you should have transferred out a year or 2 ago.

      You have no one to blame for your unhappiness but yourself. It's because of people like you that this school suffers.

      I hope you die.

      • No,

        it's because of people like you that this school suffers. It seems to take precious little for you to tell someone "I hope you die." I don't think I would be the last if I were to say the same to you.

  8. Alum

    "...the President donated $1,000 to the university this year."

    No, he donated it *last* year. That's why it was reported on his 2008 tax returns. Those are the ones that were due yesterday.

  9. >.  

    If you don't want the people to call you, just tell the caller you want to be taken of the list. Duh.

  10. Hilarious!  

    Loved the "Lingering Resentment" Calculator! And to all those who's staunch Columbian patriotism has been offended by this post, you surely aren't blind to the fact that our endowment is considerably lower than it should be considering the number of high-paid alumni.

    P.S. I hope we ALL die eventually. Hate to be in this world for TOO long! (lol--lame.)
